    Pros

    This review is for Campari America.

    The people are great at all levels of the company, from executives down to support staff, there is a personal level of engagement and an open door policy. There is a very high level of employee engagement with events, happy hours, etc. to be a part of. This company has great brands and doesn't show signs of slowing down more additions to the portfolio.

    Cons

    The only real downside I encountered is the corporate structure of BU/Region/Group levels wherein you see what's going on at your level but not the others.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, i.e. keep the personal levels of engagement and open door policy at all levels. After all, fit is what matters most.

    I worked at Campari full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This review is for Campari America.

    The people are genuinely great - from Leadership down, there is a personal level of engagement and a feeling of "open door policy". High level of employee engagement with happy hours, team building, etc to be a part of. This company has great brands, and doesn't show signs of slowing down more additions to the portfolio.

    Cons

    Every company is dysfunctional to a degree, I found Campari America to have a limited amount of dysfunction.

    The only real challenge I experienced is the corporate structure of BU/Region/Group levels where there are routine reporting levels and this can be a bit tedious if you're involved in the process. Nothing surprising here though for a company that operates in more than 90 countries.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what is working. Add leadership / career development for a broader set of employees who express interest.

    I have been working at Campari full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, good processes for hiring / training, great opportunities world wide, fun atmosphere. Great career opportunities if you are willing to move.

    Cons

    Manufacturing mentality- even for office support positions. Very little flexibility. Not a lot of career opportunities in this location, so you must be willing to move for opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Work / Life balance needs to be a priority. Vacation policy needs to be looked at for non hourly employees who are often travelling on their own time or working on their own time. Earning vacation hours for salaried employees is an archaic practice and needs to be updated.

    Need to focus on development of employees to create a stronger workforce.

    Pros

    Beautiful office! It's been a good experience so far. I have the opportunity to work with a diverse group of talented people on exciting projects that has pushed me to stretch and grow my capabilities. The perks - lots of engaging team and wellness activities offered such as Happy Hour events, Potluck, Chair Massage, Healthy Breakfast & Snacks, Bocce Ball competitions- organized by our awesome Culture Crew and Health Squad!

    Cons

    The company continues to grow and with growth at times there is change - but that's exciting.

    None

    Pros

    Great staff, nice offices and location. I enjoyed my time with the company and had wonderful colleagues. The office space was great.

    Cons

    Location of the offices was a bit out of the way. Pay was slightly low for the industry. But hey, it's not tech!

    I worked at Campari (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful office, great location, flat organization, smart & fun colleagues, fun industry

    Cons

    On US marketing team, no opportunity for promotion, very lean team, shifts in strategy, no leadership vision, no accountability for senior leadership. So many talented people have departed the company in the last year for lack of development opportunities or have been forced out due to internal politics. There is a recent culture of CYA (cover your xxx).

    Advice to Management

    No one respects current marketing (US) leadership. Promote from within, develop & invest in your people, diversify senior management from Italian, white males. Set a strategy and stick to it and give your team the appropriate resources.

    Pros

    Growing company via acquisitions and organic growth on some key brands. Offices are nice, location in San Francisco is a plus.

    Cons

    No strategic vision, short-term or long-term. Extremely lean on people, platforms, and resources. Upper management not qualified, nor engaged enough, to provide needed leadership. Accountability and sense of urgency isn't a priority with Campari America. Minimal room to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with the vast majority of leadership, actually do what you say you are going to do, become engaged in the business, actually have a strategy for once and execute on that strategy. Provide growth opportunities and allow those who are more qualified to grow within the company.

    Pros

    The culture is dynamic and fun. The people are smart and interesting and from all over the world. You have can take part in making positive change in brands and the company culture. The brands and people are interesting and fun.

    Cons

    A very flat organization so the workload is heavy and intense at times. The company is in a state of transition, becoming a larger player in the category and with that comes great change and opportunity, however, there is a bit of influx occuring as we try to figure out who we want to become.
